PopCap Games has finally revealed the first Plants vs Zombies 2 details and there’s a very good chance this new information will make the people who originally fell in love with the series on the PC a bit mad. Are you sitting down? Plants vs Zombies 2 will be released as a free-to-play title exclusively on the iOS App Store on July 18.
Designed from the ground up as a live service, the ever-expanding universe of Plants vs. Zombies 2 continues the epic struggle of plants defending your brainz against zombies from your backyard through the vast reaches of time, both past and future. New worlds with new levels, plants, zombies and new ways to play will be released on an ongoing basis. Leveraging the touch interface of Apple’s popular mobile devices, Plants vs. Zombies 2 includes all-new touch-screen power-ups that enable players to “break the fourth wall” and interact with zombies directly, as well as via plant defenses.
Patient players will be able to experience the entirety of Plants vs Zombies 2 for free. But for those who are looking for an edge, the game’s “free-to-play” nature will allow players to purchase upgrades and other in-game items.
PopCap will be hosting a special invitation-only preview of Plants vs Zombies 2 at next week’s E3 Expo. So we can expect to learn more about the game then.
